Popular messaging app WhatsApp will soon come out with group voice and video calling. However, what it was sorely missing was a WhatsApp Group Voice Calling feature which could let all the members of a WhatsApp group talk to each other at any given time.
The new feature would purportedly allow users to add multiple contacts to the same call.
This is a fast article to inform you about a new internal WhatsApp project to implement in the next updates.
WhatsApp has announced that it is testing another interesting feature of group voice and video call in Android latest version. On a related note, Facebook Messenger and Skype already have the group calling feature up and running.
The new WhatsApp v2.17.70 will also send a request to the server to ask if one calling the user is on another call or not. A report in WABetaInfo says that the new WhatsApp v2.17.70 beta for the iPhone update has a code which refers to the group voice calling feature. There is also a choice to keep the group maker to be deleted from the group by other administrators. While there are many references in the code which suggest that the voice calling for groups, is nearly a confirmed feature now.More news: North Korea turns to Australia for support against Trump in rare letter

It was previously reported that the Facebook-owned messaging app was working on a group voice calls feature and could release it next year.
According to technology website Teknepolis, one major update is that when you change your phone number in WhatsApp, your contacts would receive notification of the update. Also, the admins will be able to control the access needed to modify the subject of the group.

Finally, there is the revoke feature, which too, is under testing for WhatsApp.
Some users have expressed safety concerns as this might be used by strangers to harm others, some who may not be tech-savvy hence unaware. With over 1.2 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is available in more than 50 different languages around the world and in 10 Indian languages.
